Brooks Amycas White Blend       New Arrival!

2018 Willamette Valley, Oregon (26% Pinot Blanc, 25% Riesling, 24% Muscat, 14% Pinot Gris, 11% Gewürztraminer)

A dry and intensely aromatic white blend inspired by the Edelzwicker - wines found in Alsace. Like its French cousins this wine is very pleasurable with or without food. Aromas of rose petal, gardenia, wild mint, fennel and fresh cut grass. Tart citrus flavors mingle with notes of pear, honeycrisp apple and starfruit. All framed with a chalky minerality. $19.99/btl

 

Bench Chardonnay

2017 Sonoma, California

This Chardonnay is un-oaked, but surprisingly rich for a wine that hasn't gone through malolactic fermentation. The nose is reminiscent of fresh rainfall mixed with honey and orange blossom. The palate is crisp and well textured with flavors of stone fruit and honeydew melon, complemented by a wet stone finish. Try it with vegetable or chicken soup.  $18.99/btl

 

Valdadige Altariva Enantio Terra dei Forti

2013 Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy (100% Enantio)

Wine geek alert – Enantio is a rare grape varietal from northeast Italy. Wine Club members were treated to this gem last year. In the Alpine north of Italy this is considered a “winter wine”, hardy with some spicy notes, lots of red fruit, licorice and minerality. Chewy tannins from oak aging make this wine a great pairing for red meat and mature cheeses. $24.99/btl

 

Ink Works Wine Co. Blended Red

2016 San Luis Obispo, California (Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo)

Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon lay the foundation of blackberry pie, fresh asphalt and blueberry preserves. A dash of Merlot brings the wine into focus and pushes through nuances of chocolate cake and dried cherries. Tempranillo brings depth and complexity to the finished blend. The inherent sweetness of French oak shines through as the wine exits the mouth leaving delightful notes of blackberry pie a-la-mode on the finish. $17.99/btl

 

Bookwalter ‘Readers’ Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Columbia Valley, Washington

A stunning Cabernet from Washington’s oldest and most revered vineyards. A bold Cabernet with 18% Syrah added in for complexity. Dark and deep in color with aromatics of Cassis, red currant, dark berries, and walnut shell. Rich and open-textured on the palate, the wine has flavors of dark cherries, currants, and blackberries. Fine-grained tannins carry wine across your tongue and the vibrant acidity leaves a fresh finish to this great value. $24.99/btl

Premium Tasting List

Mignanelli Pinot Noir

2016 Eola Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon

This Sonoma-based producer has sourced old vine fruit and fermented it whole cluster with native yeast. It's a recipe for texture and detail, but here the high-toned aromatics dominate. You'll find bright raspberry fruit and trailing flavors of apple cider vinegar. $39.99/btl

 

Pincelo ‘1985 El Origen’ Ribeira Sacra Edicion especial Herencia de Martina

2015 Ribera Sacra, Spain (100% Mencia)

This wine is only made in the best years. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with zero intervention, this wine expresses the true “terrior” of the land. Ripe red currant and blackberries on the nose. Earthy with black pepper and spices. Savory with notes of tart currants and blackberry preserves. Soft tannins and a long persistent finish. Great with roast meats, stews and strong cheeses. $49.99/btl

 

Dominion Tantara Cabernet Franc

2015 Los Olivos District, Santa Barbara, California

In 2012, the Los Olivos District estate vineyards, including the 6 acre Mateo’s vineyard planted to Cabernet Franc, came online. With a commitment to detail and a finite amount of fruit, total winery production remains small. This Cabernet Franc is very plump. Lots of berries with underlying aromas of stinging nettle and uncracked peppercorns on the nose. Classic flavors of boysenberry with white pepper dust and dried herbs show on the palate, where acid cuts into a thicker mouthfeel. UNCORKED COLLECTOR’S CLUB SELECTION SEPTEMBER 2019. $39.99/btl
